Model Answer 1:
We all have our own ideas and opinions. However, not all of us are interested to share them with others. But, some people are never afraid to share their ideas or opinions with others, be them normal or radical. Today, I would like to talk about one such person who never seemed to be short of any ideas or opinions!

He seemed to be just a regular guy. I met him rather casually at a book shop when I was trying to buy a storybook for one of my little cousins. He started the conversation with me with a casual enquiry about what kind of books I was buying. In response, I told him that I was looking for a book on “fairytale” stories since my cousin was a little girl. He seemed to be a bit irritated with my response and told me with a smiling face that I should have bought her a book on “how to become a space scientist” instead. He also told me that books should be “free of cost” for everyone to read so that we can build a “knowledgeable” nation instead of an “educated” one. I didn’t feel like arguing with him because he sounded really interesting. So, he kept on going and told me a lot of things, including how to judge a person by the “language” he or she uses, before leaving the shop.

I think that the guy had some pretty interesting ideas as I also thought that one should be able to get “important knowledge” or “life lessons” for free so that everyone can become a responsible citizen. Besides, there is no proof that reading a fairytale storybook allows a person to achieve her full potentials, be it intellectually or professionally, and yet, for some “mysterious” reasons, we keep feeding our children with such “gibberish”. As his opinion on “language”, I indeed have found a lot of proofs of that around me in the past except that I just didn’t care to find a correlation between the language used by a person and his “level of intellect”.



Sample Answer 2: 
Undoubtedly, not everyone comes with tons of amazing ideas and opinions. Only a few of the people have the sense to analyze the situations and deliver the remarks and serve the ideas. Meeting with Mac Robert was an interesting issue and it helped me to get into close interaction with him. He is a man of word and loves to be with people all the time.

During last semester, I had to visit a hardware store for getting some materials for my new project. So, after getting the items, I was set to leave the shop and Robert entered. I stayed aside to let him in but instead of crossing me, he extended his helping hand to carry my goods. Usually, people are self-centred in my area and they do not involve with others unless it is highly necessary. But I found him different than others.

When asked me about what to do with the things, I replied that I would use them for my next science project. I had a plan to build an installing camera for surveillance that will be cheaper for regular application. And he came with an innovative plan that was better than my ideas. He suggested making a drone instead of the installed camera for the overseeing.

Once I followed the plan, it was a great success. Usually, we all have the ideas but we do not implement them. Robert is the person who knows what to do and when to do. He not only came up with the ideas, but he also directed me to make the project complete. It was really interesting.

Model Answer 1: Transportation is the most important mode of communication and if the roads are not well constructed, the entire transportation process gets spoiled and development process is hampered.

The main highway of our locality was built around 15 to 20 years ago and it has connected the locality with the main city which is about 20 kilometres away from the countryside we are living in. But now it is almost ruined and there are ditches across the road that has made the road bumpy. When it rains, the rain waters clog on the centre of the road and make it muddy.

Model Answer 1:
In today’s world, the idea of living without a mobile phone would certainly seem to be an absurd one to most of the people, who are used to rely on these little communication devices on a regular basis. But, today, I would like to talk about a time when I was not allowed to use my mobile phone.
